Lavola is a musical concept rather than just a band. Their catalogue is masterfully crafted with sonic artistry and precision; the lyrical content speaks volumes to the masochists in us all. In much the same manner, their live shows transcend the typical show atmosphere by combining ironic polarities: subtle with abrasive, melodic with dissonant, passive with furious. Their fan base is solid, as is the accompanying press: featured in Alternative Press, named Best Rock Band and Best Rock Vocalist of 2011 by New Times, and called "South Florida indie rock at its finest" by SFL Music. They have opened for Silversun Pickups, Against Me!, Soul Asylum, The Dear Hunter, Tim Reynolds (of Dave Matthews Band), Dead Confederate, in addition to many other prominent names.
